GMB are launching an online survey to find out how SWAST treat people when they are experiencing the menopause.
And we need your help!
The survey is primarily focusing on those who have experienced or are currently experiencing the menopause, but we are also asking for input from others, they may not have direct experience but can give useful information about how the menopause is viewed generally in the workplace. This means we would like everyone to complete the GMB survey.
The aim of the survey is to look at how people going through the menopause are treated, and opinions of the menopause in the workplace, in order that we can make things better for people going through the menopause in future.
GMB have been hearing from GMB members that they are suffering in silence, without appropriate support or adjustments in workplace, moreover that menopause is not recognised as an issue. 1 in 3 woman has either experienced or is currently going through menopause. It is clear menopause is impacting more and more GMB members. We can’t get change without being able to show the employer there is an issue!
IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE - HELPING THROUGH MENOPAUSE!
